. all three people onboard were pilots. it happened in jackson, mississippi, not far from the zoo and at least one person was inside the home. she escaped by jumping out of the window and was taken to the hospital. the owner of the plane was scheduled to be on that flight but didn't because he decided to go hunting with his family last minute. martha: what do we know about this plane specifically. >> we know the faa and ntsb are investigating. but the owner says it was in mint condition. the plane was in the hangar for a month. but they wanted to take it on this short 30-mile flight. the pilot asked to return to the airport but obviously he lost control and was unable to do so. bill: the breaking news first reported 26 minutes ago. general petraeus agreeing to testify about the libya attacks bere a house and senate committee. what will he say now that he's no longer cia chief? martha: an update on a story we first told you about yesterday. "the national anthem" now back at some youth hockey games. there has been a change of heart. >> this is so monumental, the phone calls and the
? joey jackson and brian claypool, a defense attorney. there was an error for 10 years, joey, where instead of reporting -- they have to give the data to u.s. news and world report about how great they are. one of the data they have to submit is how many freshmen were in the top 10% of their high school classes coming into your university. they were reporting 78% when it was 5 it%. >> that's a little bit of a problem. i feel bad for the students who were there who relied upon either an intentional misrepresentation or negligent misrepresentation. the university should know better and certainly the students and the parents deserve better. furthermore, not only do we get to the issue of negligence or intentional rit representation but -- misrepresentation. these students were induced into attending this university based upon what they relied to be a ranking they felt was substantive and accurate. megyn: what about those students who want to move on to professional school and are planning to go to law school or med school who thought they would be emerging from a university ranked 51st
small percentage of them. now, walmart is taking legal action to stop that. joey jackson, and david schwartz. joey, a couple of fundamentals. first of all the largest retailer in the world. here in the u.s. it has no union workers. that ajers some of the unions who have organized some of these protests. look, they have a first amendment right to protest but you have to do it within the law. you can't interfere or disrupt business? >> that is absolutely right. they are unions and serve a very important business. there are rulings in the law. you have something called the national labor relations acted and you have a board and you have rules seeshd o associated with that. it's unfair when you pick at it infinitum. there has to be represental petition. if you want to do it if it's longer than 30 days allow your members to voted whether they would like to be unionized or not. >> gregg: the law says you have 30 days. here is the letter to the unions over the past year the uscw has orchestrated pickets, mass demonstrations and flash mobs and other activities inside and outside facilities.
jackson and michael graham join us. good to have both of you here this morning. michael, it's interesting when you look at this website, this government website where they are directing new immigrants it also goes onto say, frequently it's difficult to access such benefits. benefit programs can be complicated and you may be given misleading information about how they operate. it's like one arm much the government saying the other guys are really going to confuse you, so be ware it's tough to and a half great these government reb sites. what do yo say it's tough to and a half great these web sites. >> if you're coming here because someone figured out that i want to live in america, everything free in america there is no -- no country in the world says, hey, send us your deadbeats so we can put them on the deadbeat doll as soon as they arrive much. it's a crazy message and a slap in the case to the millions and millions of illegal immigrants that come here and work and their tax dollars go to pay bumps to lift up our system. it is insane. >> santita, what do you say with apologies to leonar
the penalty have been harsher? joining me now joey jackson and mark eiglarsh. after the fact when media coverage reached a fury, sheena said i did wrong. there is a question about whether sheena feels the appropriate remorse for driving up on the sidewalk in a manner that could have killed young children or future sheenas should face harsher penalties. >> i'm not going to defend her actions. her actions were idiotic or moronic. i think that his sentence degrades the legal system. if you want to suspend her driving privileges. give her more of a fine. have her apologize publicly then that's appropriate. but when you let these judges acts like little ceasars to amuse the public and throw down whatever sentence they want like they are auditioning for a reality show, i think it demeans our system. megyn: apparently this judge took the example from a prior judge or another judge who issued such sentences as making a couple dresses of biblical characters and walking with a condi. >> i knew it was coming. i think the sentence is perfectly appropriate. you look at the purposes of the criminal j
-degree murder, isn't the right call? joining me now is a former prosecutor, joe jackson and brian claypool, who is also a defense attorney. you tell me. they were down. he shot them. they were down and then he finished them off. how is that self-defense at that point? >> here is the problem. the law in minnesota as it states right now, says that if you are a homeowner and somebody breaks into your property without consent and they are going to commit a felony, you can kill that person. this law does not distinguish between whether there was a reasonable or immediate threat to the person who owns the property. there is no language in the statute that says that. so i would argue for byron smith. it is obviously a tragedy. but i would argue that the way the law as stated, he has absolute immunity to being prosecuted for second-degree murder and i would request an immunity hearing to have the charges dropped. megyn: so if that's true, as soon as they step foot in the house, they are dead. they can step foot in the house and no matter what happens, you can continue to shoot until you are sure that t
